What's your policy on running a mailserver on your KVM hosts?

 

I can't find mention of it on your website.

 

Edit: It's also not clear - is this discount for the life of the plan or first year only?

 

Thanks!

Hello, great question!

Renewal rates will be the exact same, no price increase.

As for mailing, no issue as we do not block port 25 or filter ports in anyway. Of course, assuming the mail is legitimate you will not encounter any issues.

We are always here to help.

Dave

For comparison, an AWS c5.large with 2 cores and 4GB ram is the closest I can find. With 1TB bandwidth out it costs US$155 per month (inbound is free with AWS). Even a t3.small with 2 cores, 2GB RAM, 55GB disk and 100GB bandwidth in each direction is $25 a month. My little t3a.nano running a few low volume websites only costs me about $5 a month though, but low volume and very small server.

 

The price seems almost too good to be true? Fully used that's $337 a month / $4K a year to pay for the hardware, bandwidth, power, maintenance, support, etc. Reviews everywhere seem good though.

Hey @RackNerd

 

Any possibility of getting Debian 10 added to the mix of supported operating systems? I know I could install with Debian 9 and do a apt-dist-upgrade but would much prefer a fresh installation. Thanks!

Sounds like a great deal... I'm tempted to snap it up just because I could use it now and then.

 

What is the policy on changing the OS after purchase? Can I change this after I purchase? or do I have to select and stick with the one OS?

Just to be annoying, while this is cheap it's also typical of the offers you see on https://lowendbox.com/ - where a very similar "exclusive" offer was posted a couple of weeks ago, at a slightly lower price.  https://www.lowendtalk.com/categories/offers and https://hostedtalk.net/c/offers are other places to look if you want to see similar deals.

Hi @timmmay, we realise our pricing is low, but we’ve managed to make it sustainable. Users often even ask if pricing will remain the same on renewal, absolutely yes :) give us a shot, you won’t be disappointed. Performance is amazing, pricing is excellent and support is even better. We are here 24x7 via ticket (open a ticket any time to test us prior to signing up). I hope that we can work together

Just a followup@michaelmurfy

 

We can download and mount Debian 10 :) once you’ve ordered simply submit a ticket with support with any Linux ISO and we will download and mount it free of charge. In this case Debian 10.

Hi, good eye. We're active on those communities as well, good deals to be found everywhere for sure - and we hope that we can help anyone in need of a competitively priced KVM VPS, or AMD Ryzen 3900x KVM VPS with Enterprise NVMe or even those seeking KVM VPS in San Jose, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas and New Jersey.

 

For anyone interested or questions, please feel free to reach out.

One thing I would say is I am really impressed at least with the speed test server performance - 

 

was downloading at 150mbps from their server in LA. 

 

Now whether it is sustainable once more load goes on, who knows, but that's the same question for all VPS services where contention ratio's are a thing.

 

I'm just trying to think of a small project that would justify me purchasing one, because it seems like something handy to have.

Well I bought one - I've been paying $10USD a month at DigitalOcean to run my mailserver, now I can run it for 1/4 that price for the same (well, slightly better) specs.

 

Will soak it for a month or so first of all, make sure mail from it isn't going to get blacklisted etc etc.  But for the price it was hard to beat!
